Wow! This the author’s lifework condensed into one book so that readers can share in the fabulous fruits of this labour of love, fostered over many years in woodland education. Forest Schools have been all the rage in recent years and rightly so because children learn quite differently in an outdoor environment, surrounded by space, nature and the delights our changing seasons bring.
This book will help even the most nervous and inexperienced practitioner develop a joy and confidence around the potential for learning the outdoors can bring. With beautifully detailed, easy-to-follow, hand drawn illustrations, step-by-step instructions for creating woodland crafts [tried and tested!] for a range of abilities. This book will fast become your ‘Forest School Friend’.
It is the type of book you want to share, but be warned, you may end up buying for someone and then keeping it for yourself; it is that good!
